Hotel Phoenicia featured on The Scottish Sun

Video transcript (in English)

Words of praise for Malta, its culture and for the Maltese hospitality were expressed in an article published on Saturday 14th June 2014 in the prestigious newspaper, The Scottish Sun. The article was written by deputy editor Heather Lowrie, who is also the editor of various articles related to travel. 

The article called ‘Malta has culture and architecture in Lorry Loads’ was read by more than 650,000 people. The Scottish Sun, published in Glasgow, Scotland, is the most popular tabloid and is estimated to have at least half a million readers daily.

The Scottish Sun is owned by News UK – a subsidiary company of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation.

In Lowrie’s article, one finds a reference to the 5 star Hotel Phoenicia located only a couple of steps away from the entrance of the capital city Valletta. The author had nothing but praise towards the hotel after spending her stay at this main 5 star hotel. 

She also mentions that by coincidence upon her arrival in Malta, she encounters the Malta Fireworks Festival, which she describes as spectacular.

Above all, Heather Lowrie describes Malta as an island rich in history and culture. Locals are highly hospitable towards tourists and would go out of their way to make sure that visitors are comfortable during their vacation.

Apart from reference towards the capital city, there’s also reference to Mdina, Gozo and vineyards in the Marsovin complex. The author states that one should not pass up the opportunity of visiting this complex once in Malta due to the experience offered to wine lovers. 

In this well-written promotion for Malta, Lowrie concludes her article by re-mentioning the spectacular Fireworks Festival and states that the flares showcased in this festival on the last night of her stay will serve as a reminder of the Maltese islands’ beauty, an island that exudes history, culture and hospitality.
